What is the price per square foot….What will it cost to build my house?

How long does the design phase and the building process take?
Depending on your situation, the design process can take 45 to 60 days depending on how elaborate you wish to make your design and if you already have an architect chosen or not. Preferably Scheper Custom Homes would like to be involved as early as possible to insure that all factors are considered prior to initial drawings. Once we have a municipal approval and the building permits are pulled, the duration of construction will vary depending on the size of the house, the topography of the land and the level of details you choose.
When is the perfect time to build?
Now is the perfect time to build your dream home. With the current economic environment, construction materials and labor are still relatively low in relation to years past.
